HI everyone,
I just wanted to introduce myself since as of today I am the new Diabetes forum Moderator.
 
On top of being a type 1 diabetic, I also have Crohns, Fibromyalgia, Ostioarthritis, Asthma, Migrains, High blood pressure, and yes I could go on, Now you know why I use the name Pin Cushion!  LOL
 
I haven't been as active here as I should have been in the past, but I promiss to from now on. I bet I will get more out of this then I give by just being around more.
 
I use humor as my biggest weapon to battle my ailments. I believe that 90% of being as healthy is in my state of mind. Oh sure, I, like everyone else have my down days, but most days you wouldn't even be able to tell I wasn't "normal". Gee did I just use the N word?!?!?!
 
I am not an expert on any of ailments, I learn new things all the time , all I have to do is keep my eyes, ears and mind open and some how it seeps in.
 
Please remember what I post here like all the others are just my thoughts or opinions take what helps and leave the rest. If I can be of any help to anyone please feel free to ask and I will do my best to be of help, more times then not, it will be an encouraging word or maybe just share a smile if I can.
 
OK gang lets see what we can do to make this the most active forum at HW!
 
AL aka Pin Cushion
 
PS. Thanks in advance to forgiving my typos, poor grammer and mispellings, I ain't got no good english and lost my spell checker!

Congrats! :-) You sound like you fit the bill. I usually post on the heart board but I just found out I might have onset diabetes. If so, I'll be here often.

Thanks Vinny,
Sorry to hear you may be joining our "club" and hope it turns out you don't have too after all, but if you do please lets us know how your doing and any help we can be.

Hi Vinny... welcome to the world of dumb diabetes... Takes a while to get over the shock.. eyes I actually went through a grieving process when I found out I was diabetic. Doing better now. I get Diabetes Self Management magazine and it's a huge help. Lots of info and recipies and hints about foot care and all that good stuff. Oh, and I read your post about the homemade spaghetti sauce... If I ask nice will you share your recipe?

AL!!! Didn't I just welcome you over in the fibroforum... We gotta quit meeting like this... People will talk! And bless your heart... you called me 'kiddo' in my last post. I haven't been called that in a while and I'm four years older than you! yeah Made my day. Glad you're being a moderator. Gotta have someone keep us all in line. I don't do finger pokes since I got my arm testing meter. Sooooo much better! Anyway, welcome and congratulations! And don't forget to check the moderator's forum for info and updates.
